Ode to my gall bladder


1)Liver
2)Biliary Tree
3)Bile Duct
4) Gall Bladder







I don't know much about you,
though I've seen you on the screen.
"An organ, not a cyst",they said
and I think your bile's green.

With all my organs festering,
you are the most pristeen.
The only one worth donating.
Well, you and Mr. Spleen.

My liver's shot, my lungs get tight
My eyesight's not so keen.
We all know how the kidneys are
They're the lumpiest you've seen.

But you, dear bladder, sack of juice,
with healthy, slimy sheen
You're the bomb, da man, the whole shebang-
I dub you Organ King.
